On June 11th, Bailey House held a graduation ceremony for 13 clients who successfully completed Community Outreach Peer Education (COPE), Bailey House’s peer education program.

Our new peer educators will now go into the community and become role models as they provide support to at-risk peers and deliver accurate and impactful information about HIV/AIDS. Because community members are able to relate to them, peer educators truly have the ability to help stop the spread of HIV/AIDS as they connect with those who are in need of accurate prevention strategies.

Bailey House salutes members of COPE and the work that they do. Without this program we would be missing a key component to the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS in underserved communities.
